Are your bananas over ripened? Don’t bin them; smoothie them. They are high in fibre and a great energy booster. So you can whip up a smoothie like this and make an ideal breakfast and it will keep you full till noon. This is probably the simplest of smoothies that I make. I just breakup over ripened bananas into chunks by hand and blitz all other ingredients together.
The peanut butter takes the smoothie to another level. It’s a new flavour, delicious and quite interesting. Flavour of the peanut butter is not prominent as it is, but it marries well with banana bringing out a new flavour. Once made, I felt this smoothie has a cookie dough like taste!
2 large ripe bananas ~330g
2 Tbsp smooth peanut butter
1 ½ cups chilled milk or more if you like it thin
2-3 tbsp honey or sugar to taste
2-3 ice cubes (optional)
1. In a blender, place roughly chopped bananas, peanut butter, ice cubes, chilled milk and sugar/honey and blitz until smooth and creamy.
2. Serve immediately. You may garnish with chopped peanuts and honey.
1. If you want really cold smoothie, peel bananas, chop them into chunks and them place them in freezer until really cold. You can also freeze you over ripened bananas for later use.
2. You can also try omitting the Peanut butter and add 2-3 strawberries for a different taste.
